TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — According to the City of Tallahassee, boxes serve as billboards for criminals driving through neighborhoods, and dry live-cut Christmas trees pose a fire hazard.

To combat this, the city has laid out a plan to set up recycling sites in four community locations for cardboard boxes and live-cut Christmas trees.

The sites will be open Dec. 24 through Jan. 10 and will be located at the following locations:

- Tom Brown Park (443 Easterwood Dr.)
- Jack McLean Park (700 Paul Russell Rd.)
- San Luis Mission Park (1313 San Luis Rd.)
- Myers Park (1206 Myers Park Dr.)

The city asks that those dropping off live-cut trees please remove all decorations, as the trees will be recycled into mulch for use in parks around the city.
